Light the Park Blue
‘Mental Health Week – every person, every community’
10 – 17 October 2020 

Next week is Mental Health Week, a national event that aims to improve community awareness and interest in mental health and wellbeing.

Over 3 million Australians live with anxiety and depression. With the added pressures of the Coronavirus pandemic, there has been a significant increase in these statistics.

This year Centennial Park acknowledges Mental Health Week by lighting the Park blue.  The perimeter of our 40 hectare grounds will become a visual spectacle in recognition of all those affected by mental illness and for those families who have lost a loved one to suicide, including those who are now memorialised within our Park.

Centennial Park hopes to assist in raising awareness of mental health by encouraging open conversations about emotional and mental wellbeing within our community.
